Basically all you control is stomping on the gas pedal. I "drove", my girlfriend rode, and we raced a dad and his daughter. Anyway, it tracks your speed and time, and they do film you with a lipstick camera in the rear view mirror. My time was 118 in 1.83 seconds, which is a little greater than Dodonpa...cool!
Word is they wanted to have it faster than Dragster to make it the fastest thrillride, but that's not happeneing. It will just have the fastest acceleration.
$27! GOOD GRIEF! What a rip-off! I thought the coasters in Vegas were overpriced! Plus $10 for a 'rider.' I guess if you split the difference... Nope. $18.50 per person. That's almost a full day at Knott's with the deals going right now. Heck, that's almost a full day at SFMM! (SoCal residents only; lucky me!)
I rode it on the 11th. It was actually $28 for the driver and $15 for passenger. It was fun but there is really no control by the driver. All you do is hit the gas when the tree lights up. Its fun except at the end when your balls get smashed into the seat belt. It was fun and really fast.
I like to just go and look at some of the shops. I like old town to walk around for an hour or so. Its a nice clean place with some interesting stuff to do. There is a nifty helicopter tour place across the street I recommend checking it out!
